Headstone B-90

Row 6, Col 18

A stone wall

A great calamity
On the eve of the great joy (?)
To eternity, she has gone to sleep
Unto the universe, you taste
Abundance, you were plucked away
A tender boy, you foresaken
[and his oppression?] my mother
Gilah Raizah
the daughter of R. Tzvi Saron
The darkness of spring, were your days
Thirty-six years was your life
My eyes shed tears
For you have gone up to heaven
On the 22nd of Tevet 5669 (1909)

May your soul be bound in the bonds of heaven.
